First United Methodist Church Knoxville, Iowa: OCTOBER LINK

We have a potluck on the first Thursday of every month at 12:00 PM in the church commons. Since we want everyone to be safe, Potlucks are canceled for now. I will let you know when we can start up again.

Our next Potluck is to be announced at a later date. When we are able to get back together again, bring your favorite dish to share. We look forward to seeing everyone and getting hugs and smiles.

Lunch dates are subject to change.

DAY TRIPS Cancelled for now
Normally on the third Thursday of every month, we go somewhere, but during these quarantined times, we are playing it safe. These are day trips.


Praying that we can start back going on day trips to points of interest around our area.

Please, contact Karen to reserve your seat on the bus for all outings.

Keep checking back for more information.

Some of our favorite trips include: We use the church buses for transportation unless otherwise noted.

  • Cumberland County Playhouse and lunch at the Cumberland State Park
  • Shopping and/a show in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg before Thanksgiving.
  • Sunshine Hollow, owned by David & Vicki Rhyne outside of the Athens/Riceville area.

All lunches and events are subject to change. Watch the newsletter and bulletin for announcements.
